What is Drain Snaking?
A drain snake, also popularly known as the plumbing snake or drain auger, is a long wire either made of steel that is pushed deep into the drain pipe using a motor to unclog the pipes. Drain snaking can be applied to a variety of areas, like:
- Toilet Drain
- Kitchen Drain
- Laundry Drain
- Bathtub Drain
- Main Drain
- Sewer Drain
Snaking a Toilet Drain
A toilet drain may suffer from clogging due to some solid debris or clutter in the pipe. Blockage of a drain pipe in a toilet makes the matters inconvenient. It is because every time a person uses the washroom, the water might overflow bringing filthy water on the toilet floor. One can simply use a snake to remove the blockage in the drain and provide a clear path for the water to flow.
Snaking a Kitchen Drain
Kitchen drains often get blocked because kitchen waste gets accumulated in the pipe. In order to get rid of a clogged kitchen drain, snaking is a great option. For that, one needs to unscrew the p-trap and then shove the snake into the drain.
Maintenance Tips to Clean the Drain
- Once a week, run hot water for at least one minute down your drain. It helps a lot to remove scum and sediments clinging to the sides of the pipe.
- In drains for toilets, cover the overflow opening of the sink before you push in the snake.
- Maintain a garbage disposal bin in your kitchen to collect your garbage waste. Don’t just leave it in the sink to go through the drain pipe.
- Avoid using commercial cleaners for drains as they are caustic and can burn your eyes. In case you pour one down the drain, then do not plunge the drain.
- Refrain from the use of compressed air to clear blockages from your drainpipes as it can cause damage to the pipes in case the compressed air blasts.
A drain pipe that is totally blocked can damage the property and pose health risks for people. Even partially blocked pipes are a reason of nuisance as they result in slow drainage. In order to clear the blockage, structures known as cleanouts of appropriate design and size should be installed in the drainage system.
